General event

As part of the National Gardens Scheme, Gardens Open For Charity, Shandy Hall Garden will be open in the evening, which can be a particularly lovely time to see the garden.

Moth trapping, identification and release will be led by Dr David Chesmore - moth recorder and expert. Over 400 different species have been identified in the gardens over the last five years.  You are welcome to come and learn more about these beautiful but rarely seen creatures when moths caught the previous night will be identified and released (around 7pm) and the trap set for the following night.
